Thursdays are archive day on Gamboling at the moment. Time to unearth something…
In the time I have been writing Gamboling, I have managed to write a few gig reviews. I have tended to review the smaller gigs I’ve been to, and sometimes I’ve even remembered to review the music too. So I have been trawling the archives to see what I can find.
From 2004, we have Bugfly. Bugfly didn’t last (my friend from the band is now in Lonely Weekend – http://www.myspace.com/lonelyweekend ), but don’t let that put you off: http://www.gamboling.co.uk/14-05-04.html
From 2005, we have Goldfrapp. I think Goldfrapp might be the biggest gig I have reviewed so far – http://www.gamboling.co.uk/2005/10/goldfrapp.html
Also from 2005, we have The Spinto Band. The Spinto Band are still going. They got signed on the night I wrote my review. And they have two albums out now. And they feature Kazoos. What’s not to like? http://www.gamboling.co.uk/2005/10/their-name-starts-with-s.html
It would appear that I didn’t review any gigs in 2006. But in 2007, I reviewed two bands (Rick Witter and The Dukes, and Mother Black Cap [No longer going]) in one gig and in two parts: http://www.gamboling.co.uk/2007/05/coincidental-gig-part-1.html and http://www.gamboling.co.uk/2007/05/coincidental-gig-part-2.html
And they’re all the gigs I’ve reviewed. I really meant to write a review about Idlewild when I saw them, I took lots of notes and everything. But… erm… I forgot!
